This 5,300-square-foot Head of the Harbor Colonial with a bed-and-breakfast feel listed for $5.25 million overlooks Stony Brook Harbor and the shores of Connecticut from a wooded perch 60 feet above sea level.
The five-bedroom, six-bath home on 3.91 acres underwent an extensive renovation in 2003 that maximized views of the water.
“From every room upstairs and downstairs, you get a view of the harbor all the way to Connecticut,” says listing agent Kelley Taylor of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. Get up close and personal with the water from a 70-foot dock, which Taylor says is ideal for launching kayaks and small boats.
The first floor of the home contains a breakfast nook and a formal dining room with a wood-burning fireplace and a separate wet bar behind French doors. An eat-in kitchen features a center island.
Upstairs, there is a master bedroom and three additional bedrooms, two of which have bathrooms en suite. A finished lower level has a climate-controlled wine cellar, a cedar closet, gym space and a workshop.
A second-story library looms above a large stone courtyard, and a ground-level solarium connects to the courtyard and a wraparound mahogany porch with views of rolling lawns and weeping willows.
Two detached garages provide five cars worth of space. The three-car includes an unfinished loft; the additional two-car garage has guest quarters with a bathroom, living room, bedroom and a balcony with water views.
